I hope u mean 300$ lol[/QUOTE]

I have a GSG 1911 22lr, imported by ATI, lots of inexpensive range fun. Depending on options, a new ATI GSG will be $350 to $400 otd.

I have no first hand experience with the Chiappa version.

I have a Ruger MkII and Sig 1911-22. Both are accurate and fun to shoot. The Browning Buckmark and Ruger 22/45 are decent platforms as well.

The Walther P22, S&W M&P 22 and Ruger SR 22 look like quality guns too. In that group, my money would go to the Smith.

Lots of choices out there. Enjoy your hunt.

In my experience & opinion say no to it- I had one- No grip safety, left grip panel holds the mag catch & plunger tube in place -All plastic sights, VERY cheap gun- For a little more you can do a lot better---

For your budget it would be a good idea to check out the Bersa Thunder 22. It's a fun shooter, reliable and accurate. Just be sure to use high velocity rounds.

I have a Sig 1991 22le, a Bersa T22 and an American Classic/Chiappa (no longer in production). Shooting 22 cal is just plan fun and you don't have to see your banker first!

GSG (German Sport Guns) makes the 1911 22lr for both ATI & Sig. Sigs appear to have snazier grips and finish options.

My GSG came with plastic grips, I bought a set of wood grips made locally.

So even a. 22lr 1911 can still receive grips made for a. 45 1911

Whatever 1911 you chose you should read many reviews first. They're not all one in the same when it comes to .22 caliber. It's a funny cartridge because it's long and small with a big rim (by proportion) and a lot of guns have problems feeding.

You might also consider getting a .45 1911 and buying the .22LR conversion kit. Then you'd have a nice .45 to use when you need a weapon and a .22LR to plink with.

On the other hand, I'd still consider the Ruger 22/45. It's without a doubt the most reliable .22LR pistol made and unbelievably accurate. I can place consistent shots at 100 yards around 6'' spread with the iron sights, and the flat top models easily adapt to optics. The grip is nearly identical to the 1911, and many people use them as trainers for 1911's.

Generally speaking yes. The GSG made guns definitely a yes.

Browning's 1911 22lr seems to be smaller framed gun.
